The process usually wastes a lot of material required to support the unfinished object. Some novel ways to make flat materials […]

Bee-like aerial 3D printing

By Charles Carter, 03/10/22 Engineers from Imperial College London have created a team of bee-like drones capable of 3D printing structures while in mid-air. Such a system could enable more efficient 3D printing of buildings, especially in hard to reach locations. The drones mimic aerial builders in nature such as bees, that deposit layer upon […]
